  • 2. Where Did Social Networking Start?
  • 3. In our debates we tend to focus too much on technology

  • 6. Online social networks mirror offline lives
  • 7. It’s about the 6 C’s  Communications  Connectedness  Common Experience  Content  Commerce  Cool Experiences (ok, entertainment ;-)

  • 10. Pre Internet had social networks
  • 11. Pre Internet had social networks
  • 12. Anyone around then will know what one of these was
  • 13. AOL bridges gap between pre-Internet & Internet
  • 14. People advertised “AOL Keywords” not websites AOL Keyword: Swordfish
  • 15. Web 1.0 made it easier to have personal pages on “the web” (e.g. not AOL)
  • 16. And “groups” have been around for ages  Mothers’ clubs  Church groups  Education
  • 17. Social networks have been around for a long time.  Usability is better.  3rd -party platforms.  More people are connected. But same old shit.
  • 18. And then spam-based social networks began
  • 19. Mostly for professional use / older demo
  • 20. And it was really about extending your network
  • 21. Web 2.0 was born and we evolved online social expression

  • 27. They each captured 100m users, who increasingly wanted to share photos / video
  • 28. MySpace Bought PhotoBucket & Google Bought YouTube And MySpace declared war on developers
  • 29. And this guy (22) Schooled this guy (75)
  • 30. He understood software business was different than media business
  • 31. Within a SINGLE YEAR the game was over
  • 32. And Facebook went mainstream
  • 33. And then some !!!
  • 34. And we’re back to advertising non-web pages Brands are spending big & abandoning web pages
  • 35. Social networking then went “open”  Asymmetric  Public
  • 36. Twitter really is a totally new concept  Marketing channel  RSS reader  Instant messaging  Chat Room  Data mine  Customer service Dept
  • 37. And perhaps “open” went a bit too far Social Spending
  • 38. I think we all know that social is going mobile
  • 39. And people are building platforms to enable this Business Logic Mapping Layer Points of Interest
  • 40. OK, OK But Where are Things Headed Next?
